Kenworth releases Paccar engine brochure


Kenworth now offers the new Paccar MX-13 engine brochure.

The 12.9-liter Paccar MX-13 engine is said to meet the demands of line haul and vocational heavy-duty truck applications while providing top performance, reliability and fuel efficiency. The engine is available for Kenworth Class 8 models, including the Kenworth T660, T680, T700, T800 and W900.

According to Kenworth, the brochure features detailed engine horsepower, torque and governed rpm ratings. Charts show horsepower and torque ratings for the new engine from 380 to 500 hp and 1,450 to 1,850 lb.-ft of peak torque at 1,000 rpm. With the high-end 500 horsepower and 1,850 lb-ft torque rating, the Paccar MX-13 provides a lightweight, fuel-efficient engine option for customers in vocational applications, the company says. The brochure also is said to include a detailed specifications list and filter maintenance intervals.

The new engine utilizes the latest common rail, fuel-delivery technology, which enables injection pressures of up to 2,500 bar and significantly enhances fuel efficiency and performance, Kenworth says. The common rail fuel system regulates the fuel in a central manifold, compressing only the amount of fuel mixture needed in cylinder. The result is said to be finer fuel atomization and improved combustion efficiency, ensuring the lowest possible fuel consumption, emission and noise levels.
